I’ve been working hard the past week to get caught up. First on the list, I made a set of art cards for week 27 to remember my road trip to a quilting retreat.
I spent a good part of last week picking raspberries from our garden, getting about a pint each day.
I made raspberry jam over the weekend, which I haven’t done in ages. I added a handful of strawberries that were getting a little old and mushy. Man, I can’t believe how much jam I have now! Guess I’ll be eating more peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or making scones to spread raspberry jam on.
I’m surprised I even managed to finish the binding already, since I have three other quilts waiting for the binding to be handsewn to the back.
So these highlights are represented on my art cards for the week.
I copied the illustration style of Michelle‘s gorgeous strawberry card because I loved the look and because she always inspires me! It felt good do be drawing and painting again, since it’s been over a week that I’ve worked on any art projects. For my other card, I used a scrap piece of fabric and the selvage to record my new favorite quilt accomplishment.
I have so many project ideas I want to work on, but I also want to get caught upon my unfinished projects so I can move on.
